LAS VEGAS (AP) — A jury convicted a North Las Vegas man of four charges after he was accused of opening fire during a confrontation with the crew of the reality show "Repo Games."

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1abOBWq ) that 43-year-old Carlos Enrique Barron was found guilty Thursday of felony assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon and burglary. He was also convicted of discharging a firearm.

District Judge James Bixler set a hearing for next week to determine bail pending Barron's sentencing hearing. That hearing will be scheduled next week.

Barron could face decades in state prison.

Barron testified Thursday, saying he feared two of the show's crew members were going to attack him before he fired his handgun outside his home in April 2011. No one was hurt.
